Hank's Austin, designed by Claire Zinnecker, is filled with greenery.

So, you’re all about watching your sugar intake, taking the stairs at every reasonable opportunity (reasonable as in not wearing three-inch Manolos) and hitting the gym. But is there anything else you can do to keep yourself in line, maybe even while you’re sleeping? Cue the houseplants!

Years of research have proven that living and working among plants not only decreases annoying background noise but also lowers the levels of carbon dioxide, certain pollutants and airborne dust. Inviting a little bit of nature inside can bring on a feeling of relaxation and help keep stress at bay.
